Six six-word stories

A few weeks ago Stacey Shubitz posted a six-word story as her Slice of Life. (She, in turn, had been inspired by Jennifer Floyd’s six-word story post.) I’ve toyed with these before, but I’ve never shared any because, well, I’m never quite content with my own. (“I’m never quite content with my own” = seven words) Story of my life. (= four words)

That said, I can’t quite shake the idea, and I keep writing them. So, without too many more words, in no particular order, here are six of my six-word stories:

His tiny naked body snuggles mine.

Found my love at their wedding.

I constantly wonder what students learn.

Started presents early; still not done.

I forsook politeness to pursue learning.

One more page, then I’ll sleep.

Head over to on Tuesdays for more slice of life stories.

  1. Oh! These are such fun. I’m always intrigued by these six-word stories, but have not yet played around with them. You have created such a lovely variety! I think the last two are my favorites. Thanks for sharing!


  2. I love these, especially since I can relate to them all. My daughter found her love at her best friend’s wedding. I am waiting for my grandbaby due in December. Can’t wait to snuggle his tiny body.


    1. Ha! Our last PD day. Our school board keeps mandating (the same) specific “learnings” and I finally lost my cool and left, went to my office and did PD (reading) that is important to my actual classroom. I pretty much always follow the rules, so it was a real change for me!
